Android S Compatibility: Hermit is ready for Android S when it ships in the next few weeks.
Sandboxed Lite Apps, Multiple Profiles and Containers: Hermit is the first and only Android browser with Sandboxes: completely separate Containers that let you use Multiple Profiles. With the Sandbox feature, you can:
Custom Dark Mode Styles: Instead of a small selection of styles, now you can create your own Dark Mode style by picking one from a million colors.
Dark Mode Improvements: The new Dark Mode works much better than the previous implementation, on many more sites as well. Try it out!
Gesture Navigation Support: On recent Android versions that support Gesture Navigation, Hermit now fully supports edge-to-edge display. When in a Lite App, swipe in from the bottom 200 pixels to open the Bookmarks drawer (left edge) or Quick Settings (right edge). Any area above the bottom-most 200 pixels will invoke the system gesture (Back button behavior).
Configurable Content Blocker: Exclusively available to our Early Access subscribers, you can now select which specific kinds of content you would like to block in Hermit Lite Apps. Configurable categories include: Adware and Malware, Coin Miners, Misinformation, Hate, and Propaganda, Pornography, Gambling.
